one big, happy family

this sweet family came all the way from kentucky to have me take their pictures!
just kidding.
they had another reason for coming. they're originally from san angelo.

the reason they came back is because their family of four will soon become six.

this weekend, matthew married jill.
and while they were here, ben asked kristin to marry him.

alot going on in one week. but they couldn't be happier! and i'm so glad to get them all together.

aren't they gorgeous?! and totally as sweet as they look.

The one whom my soul loves...

At long last, my ipad arrived! And he, Charlie, as I've taken to calling him, is everything I dreamed he would be! Don't you love it when that happens? When something you saved for, dreamed of, waited impatiently for actually turns out to be as great as you thought it would be? So let me tell you about Charlie. As you can see above - he has post it notes on him. This was the first app that I paid for. A whole 99 cents! I love it! Today I actually sat there and tried to think of things I needed to do just so I could have a post it note on my home screen.

...he plays pandora stations for me as I get ready in the morning. It's just so nice to put your mascara on as Jack Johnson sings for you...

...He can be a slideshow(with music from my itunes) sitting in my office...

...Or a copy of Pride and Prejudice downloaded for FREE from ibooks sitting on my lap. If I'm not sure of a word Miss Jane Austen wrote then I simply tap it with my finger and up pops the dictionary with a definition. I am truly mesmerized by the ibook thing. It's crazy to know that I could have just about any book I wanted in my hands in a matter of minutes. I almost want to get a job that makes me travel a lot just so I can sit in airports and read...

Mason is in love with Charlie, too. He does chores for iPad time. Don't judge. That's mothering at its finest! :) And look below, he's doing math! That makes it all okay... He also entertains Grant with a glowboard that allows him to make masterpieces just by dragging his chubby finger across the screen.

If I need to know what the weather will be like for a shoot, he's got my back. (I do realize that would do the same thing, but Charlie just makes it sooo much cooler!)

He is also a calendar, a notebook, a dvd player, an ipod, the web, my deliverer of emails, a scrabble board, an alarm clock, a recipe book, ...pretty much anything you can think of! Like I said, the one who my soul loves...and I have several of you guys out there to thank for him!
So, thank you!!!

Oh, my! How on earth did this picture of Grant get here? : ) I guess I just have to tell you, since the picture just magically uploaded on its own and all, how absolutely adorable it is that he calls these binoculars his "camewa" and tells me to smile for a "peecher". And how that makes my heart melt into a big ol' puddle...

...everything just works. her perfect unforced smile, her crystal blue eyes, the wispy hairs blowing in the wind...

and I just fall in love with my "job" all over again...

lollipops and train tracks.

I don't know how I never posted any of these! I just know I did! This family is beautiful and I loved so many of their pictures!

in the event that a toddler decides they have had enough of picture taking,
lollipops can buy you some time. :)

This might be my favorite picture of all time...

out in the wild west....

and now a random assortment of favorites from the ipad-earning mini-sessions
